... provides the missing links between research and applications; we report on new materials, systems and components, innovative concepts and methods, and on the knowledge to be gained from testing new technologies in practice. We gather together expertise in one place and ensure that planners, investors and users have up-to-date knowledge – and all this in an independent, experienced and critical manner! We cover a broad range of topics: planning of energy-efficient new buildings; integration of heat recovery, insulation and ventilation technologies; optimisation of energy processes in industry and commercial businesses; use of renewable energy sources; development of new energy concepts ...

First Passive House school with a timber frame structure

St. Francis Primary School in Halle, which provides two parallel classes in each year, is almost entirely built using timber frame construction methods and meets the Passive House standard. It offers a pleasant indoor climate and attractive learning environment for around 200 school pupils. The new BINE-Projektinfo brochure entitled “Passive house primary school in Halle undergoes monitoring” (11/2018) presents the concept as well as the results of the multi-year monitoring and accompanying sociological research. The new building consumes 90% less heating energy than comparable primary schools in Germany, but still has reserves in terms of the electricity consumption.  more...

Building large heat storage tanks from segments

A consortium from research and industry has deployed segmental construction for a larger storage tank for the first time. The storage tank is made from enamelled and sealed steel segments. The construction method has been tried and tested for cooling storage. The new BINE Projektinfo “Cost-saving erection of large heat storage tanks” (10/2018) presents the first results from a demonstration model with a volume of approx. 100 cubic metres. The researchers tested the durability in regard to temperature changes, the corrosion resistance and the suitability of various insulation materials..  more...

Vocational college becomes an energy-plus school

When refurbishing a building, using as much as possible of the existing building fabric saves money and energy. The planners and clients took this approach for the vocational college in Detmold. Furthermore, they placed value on using resource-saving materials. The primary objective was to generate more primary energy than it consumes during operation. The new BINE-Projektinfo “Refurbished vocational college achieves energy-plus level” (09/2018) presents the concept and the first monitoring results.  more...

Wind energy: Reduce noise without forfeiting output

The expected noise emissions and the resulting necessary distance to residential buildings are of great importance in the approval of wind farms. Scientists have designed a rotor blade profile that is as low-noise as it is high-performance and have tested its potential for noise reduction. The new BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Testing low-noise rotor blades in the wind tunnel” (08/2018) presents the first results. The measurement data gained from the tests are necessary to improve simulation tools in such a way that developers can already compare possible variants on the computer.  more...
